L'Oréal x Balmain Colour Riche Matte Lipstick, Winter 2017

New Release: L’Oréal × Balmain (Colour Riche Matte Lipstick)

I don’t usually post new releases that are unrelated to nail polish, but I do make the occasional exception when my interest is piqued.

I first heard about this collaboration between L’Oréal and Balmain via Austria-based Dandygal back in October. She picked up quite a few of these in the more unique shades, so you can visit her blog for swatches and reviews!

At the time, I remarked that we rarely get the cool collections in Canada.

But lo and behold, they have arrived! Not only that, but you can order them online in Canada, directly from L’Oréal. They are C$18 each, and shipping is free on orders of $50+. (Personally, I think I’ll wait to see if these turn up in stores.)

L'Oréal × Balmain Colour Riche Matte Lipstick in Balmain Instinct

The new, limited edition collection consists of twelve high-fashion shades of matte lipstick. The casing is also slightly different, with colors and patterns reminiscent of semi-precious stones: to my mind, lapis lazuli, onyx, and malachite.

From L’Oréal:

Introducing 12 new edgy, matte shades encased within an exclusive pack, designed by Olivier Rousteing. 12 lip colours designed to embody 3 femininities: Glamazone, Rock & Couture. Shades for every woman, no matter her origin, no matter her tribe. The formula is infused with pure pigments and camellia oil, to give our richest colour and most moisturizing matte finish.

“No matter your origin, no matter your tribe come together, be seen,
be heard, united, we are all invincible, because we are all worth it”
—Olivier Rousteing, Creative Director, Balmain

(That’s Olivier Rousteing in the middle of the banner at the top, by the way.)

The twelve shades are divided equally into four “femininities” or “tribes”: GlamazoneRock, and Couture:

I’m really not much of a matte lipstick person, but some of these colors are very intriguing to me! What do you think?
